Hi 

I would like to know how the GPU load or game display settings impact the CPU temperature.

Higher game display settings will increase GPU load amd temperature, but will it impact CPU or not

Late Macbook Pro 2016 13' touch bar + AKITIO node + GTX 1050TI 4G Windows

Using a Core with a 980 and a MBP2016 I have found that when I run some games with vsync off at 200+ fps they hit the CPU hard enough feeding frames to the GPU that the core's 45W charging doesn't keep up, but the same games capped at 60 keep the CPU cool and quiet and charging happily. Many graphics settings will only change GPU load, but a few things can also change the CPU load.

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
